A Great Sunday Buffet

Went for an annual Brunch get-together. We have tried different venues over the years but Hs Lordships is one of the best. The food is always very good with such a wide variety that everyone is satisfied. Add to that a GREAT view of San Francisco bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, you just can't ask... read more

My church ministry have our Christmas Luncheon here every year. The service is great and so is the food. It is a great place for group parties and just for yourself and friends.

We dined twice - 6/15 at sunset and 6/16 for their early bird special (5 - 6 PM). Lovely old-school food and charm - incredible view of the bay, the bridge and wind surfers - and really good food. We had the fish and chips and crab/shrimp Louie one night and prime rib and grilled salmon the next - perfectly... More

This is a huge place, with generally great views over the water, bridges, etc. Indeed great place to bring visitors. The food is good but nothing over the top, and the service staff is nice enough but pretty spread out and not always sufficiently attentive, even if well-intended. Big disappointment was that it took nearly 20 minutes to settle up... More

Visited friends in Berkeley and we all decided to try our luck on Easter.We called Lordships to be told that they are pretty much booked up but as the weather was not great they could have some slots open if people dont come. We decided to give it a try and were not dissapointed. The hosts were very welcoming and... More

Lordships is located at the SW end of the Berkeley Marina, over the water with a 270 degree view of the SF Bay from Marin County including Mt Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge, downtown SF, the Bay Bridge, and windsurfers/sailboats from the Berkeley Marina. I rated it excellent for the view. Be sure to try the basil pesto with your... More

A friend from the area booked us dinner there right at sunset and you could not have had a more amazing view. We both had the special of the night which was a giant lobster tail ($39). It was prepared well and the sides were nice.

Outstanding views and a wonderful selection for Sunday Brunch. The Service is kind and helpful. the food is very good...the crab salad and the fresh crab are very good as is the sushi. The prices are reasonable, so you should check this spot on the SF Bay out.

You can go here and eat, but this establishment is mostly for banquets. They have large rooms, some with nice views for these occasions. There's also a bar, and you can go there just to eat. The food is so-so, their decor could use some updating.

Do you want great food? How about throwing in a great view of the San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge and the S. F. skyline? (From almost every table!) BUT WAIT... there's more. Can you handle TWO champagne Mimosas - EACH? Prompt seating? Truly friendly service? Ample parking? Linen tablecloths and napkins? Did I ask if you want GREAT food?... More
